Feed Sexual Photographs: Surprise! Men Look At Faces, Women Focus On Sexual Acts (

Researchers analyzing the viewing patterns of men and women looking at sexual photographs were surprised to find that men are more likely than women to first look at a woman's face before other parts of the body, and women focused longer on photographs of men performing sexual acts with women than did the males. These types of results could play a key role in helping researchers to understand human sexual desires and its ultimate effect on public health.

Submission + - WordPress 2.1.1 Download Compromised; Upgrade ASAP

Kelson writes: "WordPress developers have announced that sometime within the last few days, the download files for WordPress version 2.1.1 were compromised and remotely exploitable code was added.

It was determined that a cracker had gained user-level access to one of the servers that powers, and had used that access to modify the download file. We have locked down that server for further forensics, but at this time it appears that the 2.1.1 download was the only thing touched by the attack. They modified two files in WP to include code that would allow for remote PHP execution.

The Subversion repository is clean, and WordPress has released a 2.1.2 version with additional fixes (including, judging by the diffs, a fix for a cross-site scripting vulnerability discovered a few days ago). Anyone running 2.1.1, especially if you downloaded it within the past few days, is encouraged to upgrade immediately."
